New York City Rollers


In this post I'm going to talk about velcro rollers and also my new vinyl wall sticker.
Application is pretty simple for these wall stickers. This one in particular, of New York City, came printed on two sheets. On both, two levels of sky line were printed one above the other. I cut these so they were four individual sections.

- First make sure you know where you want it to sit, and that it sits level. I used a pencil to mark around the outside so I knew where to stick it.
- Feel off the backing paper leaving the vinyl left stuck to the clear film.
- Carefully place your sticker onto your wall, sticking one side down first, then pushing out any air bubbles as you stick down the rest.
- Slowly peel off the clear film.

All packaging of this wall sticker is fully recyclable too.

Now to the rollers!

Note these pictures of the rollers were taken after sleeping in them, hence it looks a messy state :)

So here's the first time I attempted using velcro rollers! These were from Primark in both small and larger size.

First I washed my hair as normal, towel dried it a little, added my usual treatment products, then some Professional Sebastian Whipped Creme light conditioning style whip. This is meant to help set your hair for glamorous bouncy curls.

I blow dried my hair very slightly so it was damp. Starting with a large roller I added it long the middle of my hair at the front, a section not quite as wide as the roller. I used it almost as a brush, with it behind the section and brushed the section from the root up to the ends. I then rolled it back, all the way until it sat against my head. Repeating with more along the middle of my head. I also did this with two sections either side of my head. The velcro holds onto your hair to keep it in place.

For the lower half I used the smaller velcro rollers. I did not need to pin them at all, my hair's just the right length/thickness, if yours is long I'm assuming you'd need to pin them so they stay in place better.

I then decided to sleep in them, this was a tad uncomfortable to be honest. You can buy ones with a sponge inside which are meant to be slept in, but I cannot really see them making much difference to how awkward it is. But I didn't want to sleep on my hair after taking the rollers out and ruin all the volume.

So the pictures above was how they looked after sleeping in them, I then took them out and below is how it look. AMAZING volume! With no heat added! If you watch my recent video you'll see I did end up straightening the ends as they were very curly and I wasn't sure if it was a bit much! I'm going to get another set of larger rollers so next time I can try those all over my head so it's volume and not curls :)

I've watched tutorial where people add them in to dry hair. They curl their hair before, then add the rollers as the heat helps them set. If you do not wish to use heat, add them into damp hair, use a styling moose, let your hair fully dry, then take them out.

I'm really surprised at how effective these were! Especially as both sets cost me a total of around £3.50! The volume stayed in my hair for days, obviously not as much as in these pictures, but it was certainly noticeable. It was really easy to do too!

What are your thoughts on velcro rollers? Have you tried them before?
